|Spam Jam - Ryan Kawailani Ozawa|
Lovely Spam, Wonderful Spam! People in Hawaii love their Spam, and consume more of the stuff per capita than any other U.S. state. So of course we celebrate our love of everyone's favorite "mystery meat" with an annual celebration known as the Waikiki Spam Jam. Kalakaua Avenue becomes the center of all things Spam, from dozens of Spam dishes to Spam merchandise to wandering Spam mascots. Music is "Honolulu Shuffle" from The Ukulele Experiment by Kaimoku.

|Wet Waikiki - Ryan Kawailani Ozawa|
Much to the dismay of Spring Break vacationers, Hawaii has been plagued by uncharacteristically bad weather for the last two weeks. Thunderstorms, heavy rains, floods, landslides, even tornados and hail. The tourist mecca of Waikiki has not escaped the gray skies, where you're now as likely to see umbrellas and ponchos as bikinis and surfboards. Music is "Puddlehopping" from Fall Submissions by AntiGuru (Magnatune).
